EntICE, ICE's education program of collaborations with youth orchestras around the country, continues with our inaugural partnership with the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra. This concert will be the culmination of several visits to the orchestra, during which ICE members lend their expertise and leadership in the process of creating a brand-new commissioned work by Anahita Abbasi, to be performed side by side with the student players. Stay tuned for details.
